Description: The Impact of AD: Once considered a rare disorder, Alzheimer’s disease is now seen as a major public health problem that is seriously affecting millions of older Americans and their families. The Federal government’s lead agency for Alzheimer’s disease research is the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health. NIH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. Although the risk of developing AD increases with age – in most people with AD, symptoms first appear after age 60 – AD is not a part of normal aging. It is caused by a fatal disease that affects the brain.
